Woman in Greater Noida burnt alive after hospital declared her dead
Los Angeles : In a bizarre incident, a 24-year-old woman hailing from Greater Noida in Uttar Pradesh was burnt alive- hours after doctors pronounced her dead, it has been claimed.
According to reports, the woman named Rachna Sisodia died of a lung infection at Sharda hospital in Greater Noida.
Woman’s husband Devesh Chaudhary, 23, took possession of her body at 1.27am and drove to Aligarh to cremate her at 8 am.
However, reports say that somebody tried to drag the woman off from the funeral pyre, believing her to be still alive.
Later, a post-mortem examination report showed charred particles in her windpipe and lungs, say police, which would not have been present if she had not been breathing.
Doctors have also agreed upon that the cause of her death was not lung infection but in fact 'shock caused by being burnt alive'.
A police spokesman added: “This happens when someone is burnt alive. The particles go inside with the breath. If a person is dead, such particles cannot reach the lungs and the windpipe. So, the doctors concluded that the woman was burnt alive on the pyre.”
Now, doctors have also preserved a piece of bone for conducting DNA tests, whose results should be available soon.
